VERIFICATION

V1 Standard Verification Group

Dependent Verification Form (pdf)

Independent Verification Form (pdf)

Students must also be sure that they use the IRS data retrieval option to import tax information into the FAFSA for both students and parents if the student is considered dependent.  Students or parents who were not required to file taxes and did not file them must be sure to indicate how much they earned in 2012 on the Verification Worksheet and submit all their W2s to the Student Financial Aid Office.

Here’s an online tutorial for using the IRS data retrieval tool under Step 5 Financial Information: Online Tutorial.

If the IRS data retrieval is not an option or does not work, the student and parent must submit an IRS tax return transcript, which can be ordered from the IRS web site at www.irs.gov.
